Defending champions Kabras Sugar will renew their rivalry with KCB RFC in the Enterprise Cup final at RFUEA ground on Saturday.
KCB defeated Impala Saracens 20-18 in the semi-finals played in Nairobi while Kabras knocked out Homeboyz 37-11 in the other semis in Kakamega.
The results set up a mouth-watering final clash between the two sides who have previously faced off four times in the Kenya Cup finals with KCB emerging victorious on all four occasions.
Kabras coach Jerome Muller said he can’t wait to face the bankers terming their meetings always a must watch.
The South African said he is targeting to end the season with a double.
“We want to end the season on a high note especially after recently winning the Kenya Cup. Two trophies in a season will be a big achievement for the club," said Muller.
“Playing KCB always draws big crowds and banter that makes the match pulsating. The matches are always tough but we relish the meetings."
The last time Kabras and KCB met was during the 2021-2022 Kenya Cup regular season where KCB triumphed 28-20 on February 26 this year.
KCB went on to relinquish their Kenya Cup title after losing to Menengai Oilers in the semi-finals 24-17.
Kabras Sugar in the process ended their seven-year wait by edging out Oilers 34-28 to win the Kenya Cup.
KCB and Kabras Sugar have also met twice in the cup finals. Interestingly, the bankers have also reigned supreme over the sugar men.
In the 2016 and 2017 Enterprise Cup finals, KCB prevailed on both occasions.
